Clark Propane Forklift
Numerous forklifts are made to operate on propane gas. Forklifts which utilize propane are easy to refill. The gas is stored inside a pressurized tank on the truck's back. The propane is pushed into the engine, where it is converted into vapor and then the vapor mixes with air. The throttle of the forklift is used to control the vapor flow. A spark plug ignites the mixture of vapor and air creating pressure which moves the pistons. The pistons run the hydraulic pump and turn the wheels.
Since the kinds of forklifts which are powered by propane have low emissions and are clean burning, they are suitable to be used within warehouses and other buildings.
What allows a forklift to lift and move heavy things from one place to another is the hydraulic system. Tubes, cylinders and a pump make up the hydraulic system. The pump forces dense fluid in the tubing and into the cylinders. The pressure build up pushes a piston, which lifts the forks. When the forks are lowered by the operator, the hydraulic fluid flows out of the cylinders and back in the pump.
Propane forklifts work well where maneuverability is necessary. Unlike a car, a forklift uses its rear wheels to turn, which allows the forklift to pivot quickly on a tight radius.
